Matt Butler is a folk artist, a rock’n roller, and a storyteller. Weaving personal experience with a timeless style, Butler brings honesty and openness to his classic approach to songwriting. Matt Butler first gained notoriety as the lead singer of the New York based band Reckless Sons, who signed a development deal with Island Def Jam/Mercury Records and released two EPs, the latter with legendary record producer David Kahne (Lana Del Ray, The Strokes, Sublime, Paul McCartney). The turning point in Butler’s career came, however, when he confronted his lifelong struggle with alcoholism and substance abuse. After getting sober, Butler recorded his debut solo album Reckless Son, a poignant confession of his battle with addiction and his inspiring path to recovery. Butler’s debut album Reckless Son was released to critical acclaim on Sept. 9th, 2016. Immediately following the release, Butler wrote and performed ‘Just One’, the original song for the feature length and nationally distributed documentary Generation Found. Butler has spent the past year on the road supporting both the film and the album, performing everywhere from The Paramount Theater in Los Angeles to the steps of numerous State Capital buildings. Butler’s credits recently expanded to include his first ever ‘Behind The Walls’ Tour, where he performed exclusively in State Prisons across Ohio. More recently, Butler was honored as a ‘2017 Leader In Mental Health Awareness’ by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) alongside Pulitzer Prize Winner Ron Powers and Super Bowl Champion Keith O’Neil.
